View from the Top: Empire State Building

Standing atop one of the tallest buildings in the most densely populated metropolis on the planet made me feel small (and not just in stature). Buildings, people, stories.. life.. as far as the eye can see. New York, much like the spirit of success in this city sprawls vertically upwards; rooftops clutching at clouds, concrete and glass squeezed into the smallest of plots.

And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? ... No urban night is like the night there... Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will- Ezra Pound 

p.s. how cool is Mr Pigeon?
